Children's centres in Hounslow support children under five and their families. From pregnancy through to primary school, your children’s centre is there to support you.
You can access a range of services all in one place. As your child makes friends and learns as they play, you can get advice on family matters and find out about training opportunities.
Each children's centre aims to provide services that are tailored to their communities needs. So services will vary but may include:
High quality early years provision. This may include childcare and early education at the centre or signposting to other local childcare providers
Information on local home-based childcare and a chance to meet with registered childminders
Play and learn sessions where parents stay, have fun with their children and become involved with their children’s learning.
Health information including antenatal advice and support, breast feeding, nutrition and help with giving up smoking.
Parenting support including courses or just someone to talk to.
Information and advice on employment and training including links to Jobcentre Plus and Adult Education
Many services are free but you will need to pay for childcare.
Our mission statement
Hounslow Children’s Centres are committed to ensuring that all of our under 5s are safe and free from all kinds of harm.
We will provide opportunities for all children to enjoy life in good health and progress well to achieve their full potential, allowing them to make a real contribution to the world they live in.
We will work with families to meet their needs, achieving positive outcomes for everyone.
We will judge our success by:
Families with young children, from the whole community, choosing to use our centres to achieve their aspirations and meet their needs
Showing we have helped families and children to improve their lives, and reduced inequality
Demonstrating that our service increases children’s safety and well-being
You should be able to download our latest activity timetable on the left hand side of this page to see what we are offering each week. If this is not present, please contact us and we can send one out to you or discuss what services are available.
We are still currently awaiting our first ever graded Ofsted inspection.
